Journey to the Automated & Orchestrated Cloud

  1. 1. Journey to the Automated &Orchestrated CloudDave KinsmanWorld Wide TechnologyNational Technical Solutions ArchitectJune 12, 2012© 2011 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 1
  2. 2. It can be difficult to describe 2
  3. 3. 3
  4. 4. Many technologists see Cloud as aculmination of a long line ofcontributing technologies 4
  5. 5. 5
  6. 6. Application A Application B Application C Mainframe computing Multiple specialized applications on a single platform High cost—unaffordable by many businesses 6
  7. 7. Application A Application B Application C Migration onto commodity servers The beginning of ubiquitous business computing 7
  8. 8. Application A Application B Application C Application D…several years later… Massive infrastructure sprawl New problems with power, cooling, and space 8
  9. 9. Application A Application B Application C Application DConsolidation onto more powerful servers, central storage, and dense switching……but still siloed. 9
  10. 10. Application A Application B Application C Application D … Application E Application N Businesses continued to innovate New applications continued to come online Silos continued to proliferate 10
  11. 11. Application A Application B Application C Application D Application E Fewer servers Fewer storage devices Increased server utilization Increased storage utilization 11
  12. 12. Cloud is a delivery model for IT services Cloud is not an engineering term, cloud is a business termCloud does not solve IT problems, cloud solves business problems 12
  13. 13. Public Cloud Private CloudCommunity Cloud Hybrid Cloud 13

  17. 17. Which of the following are top drivers of cloud computing initiatives at your organization? (Please check all that apply) Drivers of Cloud Computing Initiatives at Organization Business agility (faster time to market, increased user satisfaction) 75% Reducing IT infrastructure investment 56% Reducing IT management and maintenance resources 53% Increasing capacity/availability (data center, storage etc.) 50% Increasing productivity of IT 46% Disaster recovery/business continuity 40% Improving IT control 32% Industry regulatory changes 17%Base: 636 Total respondents; 234 US respondents; 202EMEA respondents; 200 APAC respondentsSource: CIO Global Cloud Computing Adoption Survey January 2011 17

  19. 19. Regardless of Perspective, Cloud Requires… A structured, service lifestyle approach Capability model and roadmap that addresses people, process, and technology A flexible design you can evolve for tomorrow’s cloud model Solution architecture blueprints that provide customization to protect key investments already made Solid implementation plan built on real life projects

  22. 22. WWT‟s Pragmatic Approach to Cloud Think Strategically, Execute Tactically 1 Define current state, document your starting point 2 Agree to a 2-3 year vision Build success incrementally, 3 project-by-project 4 Continually validate ROI/TCO Approach Cloud focused on 5 people, process, technology, and architecture.
